The uber-talented Janelle Monae takes some heavy inspiration from Andre 3000's iconic "Hey Ya" visual for her new music video for "Dance Apocalyptic", the second single from the Kansas girl's upcoming third studio album "The Electric Lady", due September 10.
Janelle and her band will wow the female crowd at some fake television show with a vibrant performance of the mainstream, feel-good, and vintage-sounding bop, "Dance Apocalyptic". Janelle looks hot in this video! Wonder why she decided to copy the original idea of Andre 3000's "Hey Ya" vid, though?. She even copied some of Andre's cool weird moves, lol. I mean, Janelle could've come up with an original video treatment for "Dance Apocalyptic". She's a smart, and quirky girl. In any case, I like "Dance Apocalyptic", but hopefully "The Electric Lady will be filled with more unique, less mainstream tracks.
